Rogers Nano Sim Cards

I was lucky enough to get an unlocked iPhone 5 ordered this morning and it should arrive on Friday. One problem - I can't seem to get a Nano Sim Card from Rogers. I'm being told by Rogers they should be available on Friday, but I don't want to go anywhere near a Rogers store on Friday and I also don't want to find out on the weekend that they are all sold out. I really don't want to get the phone on Friday and not be able to use it. Anyone hearing anything different about availability of the Nano Sim Cards from Rogers? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Why not just cut your existing card to fit the smaller size? Granted it needs to line up properly so if you don't know where to cut it could kill the sim.

I agree 100% and I'm in the same boat, I have 0 interest in even thinking about that bullshit provider that we give to much money to. I was hoping to pop in Monday or Tuesday to a Rogers and grab one, I had read posts earlier today that said the nano sims were already in some stores. I also herd unlike the normal sim to micro it could be cut into size but I've herd the nano cannot be cut from our micro sim. I guess will all soon find out!

Here's Rogers nano sims pics/some info

Tried contacting RogersHelps via Twitter to ask when I would be able to obtain a nano-sim at a Rogers location, and this is the response I received:

Hi, if a customer activates a new postpaid plan, a nano SIM will be provided free of charge at a Rogers store after launch.

Tweeted back to clarify that I have ordered from the Apple store and am currently on contract (6gb data) and haven't heard back.....will let you know....

Exact same thing. I told them that is not what I was asking. @postrestart

My understanding is that these nano-SIMs are different and cannot be cut from full sized SIMs.

nano-SIM is also 15pc thinner than micro-SIM. So, even if normal/micro-SIM can be cut to the nano-SIM size, there is no way to reduce the thickness.

From RogersChris:

"If you are activating an iPhone 5 in an Apple store, a customer will be provided a nano SIM card free of charge. However, Apple does not sell nano SIM cards out right.

If you purchase an iPhone 5 on apple.ca, customers can purchase a nano SIM card on rogers.com or visit a Rogers store. At a Rogers store, if a customer activates a new postpaid plan, a nano SIM will be provided free of charge. Existing customers that require a nano SIM to replace their current SIM will be charged $9.99. Nano SIM cards purchased on rogers.com cost $9.99.

Nano SIM cards will be available on launch day. All Rogers stores will have them."

Exactly what I was trying to avoid - having to go to a Rogers store on launch day! Thank you for Rogers for making the process so easy. ARGGGGHHHH
